2020 INFINITI Q50 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Infiniti Q50?

The five-seat Q50 is Infiniti’s luxury sports sedan that blends spirited driving, comfort and technology. The base engine is a 300-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 that works with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The performance-oriented Red Sport trim features a 400-hp variant of the V-6. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS.

What’s New on the 2020 Infiniti Q50?

The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine has been dropped, leaving a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 as the base engine. Meanwhile, a new generation of Infiniti’s dual-screen InTouch multimedia system includes HD displays and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

What Features in the 2020 Infiniti Q50 Are Most Important?

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Blind spot warning, full-speed adaptive cruise control, backup collision intervention, and lane departure warning and prevention are optional. A 360-degree camera system is also optional.

Should I Buy the 2020 Infiniti Q50?

Compared to its class, the Q50 has more losses than wins. While it earns praise for its powerful V-6 engine, its complicated multimedia system and underwhelming driving feel hold it back. With other great options in the sports sedan segment, it’s worth your while to check out the competition before making a purchase.

5.0

Highly recommend

Car is exactly what I wanted plus more. Drive great with great gas mileage although it takes premium fuel it’s well worth it in the mileage. Highly recommend if u want a smaller vehicle to travel with

3.6

The car is great except for the electronics.

This is my 3rd infiniti in a row but the 2020s have big time computer problems and the rearview camera is absolute garbage. I've had nothing but problems with the computer system and it keeps locking up. The camera is almost dangerous to use when you're backing up. I've been in several times to fix this and they have not been able to. Very unhappy with the car.
